Community Events

MIR and PTM offer many educational and fun events throughout the school year to support a closer community. View the school calendar to see all events and activities for the year.

Back to School Night
This is an opportunity for parents to meet other parents as well as get to know the staff, the Board of Trustees, and the PTM Executive Committee. MIR and PTM cover what to expect during the school year and the calendar of events. Back-to-School Night is followed by classroom orientations for Primary and Elementary families. Toddler familes have their orientation a little later in the month.

Camp Montessori
Twice a year staff, parents and students camp overnight under the trees of the MIR campus. Everyone joins around the campfire for songs, stories, and fun.

Halloween and Spring Carnivals
Each fall and spring families gather to enjoy a carnival complete with game booths, rides, costume parade (fall), art exhibition (spring), and more.

Holiday Sing
Held at the University of Redlands Memorial Chapel, families and friends are treated to singing and dancing performed by all MIR students, including the tiny toddlers. The Chapel is always filled to capacity.

PTM Family Skate Nights
Family and friends of MIR and The Grove School are invited to these private skating events, held at Cal Skate in Grand Terrace. We have the rink to ourselves for two hours, and skaters are welcome to stay for public skating following the vent. Skate rentals are available as small as toddler size 9, and supports are available for an additional fee for new skaters. Ticket prices are super low -- $6, which includes skate rental and a skate lesson.

Spring Gala & Auction
This fundraising event involves an evening of food, entertainment, and live and silent auctions. This is a great date night for parents! Learn more.
